Partnership needed

                                    Re: Future business Partner
name is Martin Andy. I work with the Standard Bank Limited as an 
account officer. In the discharge of my duty, I stumbled on this 
domiciliary account that has remained dormant for three years now with 
eight million dollars(US$8M) in it. I contacted my Director and we sent 
out staff for enquiries and discovered that the account holder died in 
motor accident with the next of kin, his wife.
Since I have been 
unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3 years now, I seek 
your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that 
the proceeds of this account valued at $17,000,000.00(seventeen Million 
US Dollars).That is the principal amount added the interest for 3 years 
can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. I will get 
all the required papers from the appropriate offices to ensure that the 
bank sees you as the real next of kin to this deceased customer.
view of this, I got your contact in my country's trade journal after 
which I was convinced to contact you and introduce this business with 
you as a foreigner. The request of the foreigner as a next of kin in 
this business is occasioned by the fact that, the customer was a 
foreigner and I can not stand as the next of kin to a foreigner. I have 
agreed to share this money with you in the mutual understanding of 65%
/25%/10%. Meaning that, you will keep 25% as commission, while I keep 
65% and 10% is set outside for expenses that may be incurred during the 
proceed of this transaction. Thereafter I will visit your country for 
mutual sharing between both of us. Bear in mind also that I would like 
to invest my own part of the share in your country. As I am almost due 
for retirement. For us to proceed towards this transaction, you have to 
send an application text to the security company as the next of kin to 
their deceased customer. 
I am writing you so that we can work with 
you to remit the money to you as the next of kin. It is a simple 
process which will take a short while to process and outside this 
arrangement am making with you, The bank management will confiscate the 
money as unclaimed.
If I hear from you, I will give you more 
information about the fund. 
Please contact me through this email 
Best Regards,
Martin Andy
